Colour block, graphic prints – Weekly Wishlist

Here’s a thing – how to colour block. What does that even mean? Wearing the same colour all over? Nope. Wearing blocks of different colours? Yes! What about graphic prints? Or geometric prints? Both are similar. Both look great in bold colours, or monochromes.

So, that’s ourweekly wishlist this week; the best of colour block and graphic prints!

Colour blocking with stripes is popular – try BHS’s black, white and grey tunic (£10, was £25) for a subtle look, or be a bit bolder with New Look’s blanket wrap is autumnal shades (£19.99). Or GAP’s gorgeous sweater dress (£29.95) in blues and greys.

Wiggle those stripes a bit, and create a graphic chevron stripe colour block style with H&M’s monochrome jersey vest (£7.99), or add a touch of green in H&M’s stripe shift dress (£14.99).

Louche @ JOY’s pink geometric graphic print dress (£27, was £55) is fantastically bright colour blocking graphic print style.

Colour blocking graphic prints - weekly wishlistColour block on the beach with New Look’s fab bikini (£7.99, bottoms, £14.99, top), and Evans @ BHS’s bright and comfy sandals (£15, were £28). BHS’s subtle pastel colour blocking bag is a perfect summer tote (£25).

Over at French Connection, there is a lot of colour blocking coming up this autumn. Their monochrome, asymmetric top (£75) is slightly sci-fi in style!  We adore their black and white overlay dress (£95) – perfect late summer slouchiness! And  their yellow, pink and black shift (£90) is colour blocking perfection.

Be bold and bright with Colour Blocking Fashion!

Colour blocking  is here to stay this year. We previewed it on this blog earlier in the year, and we’re back, with more colour blocking. It’s the perfect way to brighten things up, even when the weather is typically Scottish summer-like! So get colour blocking!

The best way to colour block is to pick three or four bold colours, and mix them up. We’ve created a few outfits for inspiration. All you have to do is pick your favourite colours, be bold, be brave and mix it up!
